Another manufactured brouhaha has arisen due to the (now-former) CEO of Mozilla being a bigot and other people–also bigots–being mad that he wasn’t allowed to be a bigot in peace and without suffering any consequences for said bigotry. Some words and phrases shall be misused; TotD helps you sort the gay wheat from the gay chaff.
Tolerance is realizing that Billy is going to punch dicks and accepting him for the dickpuncher he is. It doesn’t mean offering up your dick like a virgin to the lava gods during volcano season.

Freedom of Speech is a fuzzy-brained catch-all term that doesn’t exist, legally or morally. Were you talking about the First Amendment? Because that’s what’s germane here, except that it’s not. The First Amendment prevents the government from stopping citizens from saying things, except when they can and it doesn’t apply to private companies and certainly has nothing at all to do with interactions between citizens on ethical grounds. Congress can’t stop Vince from doing Samba in the Rain, but the crowd going to the bathroom during the song is not a freedom of speech issue: that’s just good taste.

The h0mosexual agenda involves securing liberties and rights and tax breaks, then blowing some dudes. It was also what the crew called Mickey’s mustache behind his back.
